      I saw Dr. Raj Sinha last week to inquire about stem cell procedure for my shoulders and hips. I left feeling like I met a Doctor that’s so knowledgeable and caring. He gave me great advise. I’d highly recommend Dr. Raj Sinha and Ortho Star. He has great bedside manner and definitely puts his patients first!

      He operated on my hip and left me handicapped! Evidently, he had to move a gluteus muscle to do the surgery but failed to put it back when closing the site. WhenI reported I was still in pain after the surgery he immediately, without reviewing the case, blamed it on my back! Arogant! Stay away!

      I had trouble with my right knee following an injury that left me bone on bone. After many surgical consults in the Palm Springs area & Beverly Hills, I loved that Dr Sinha waited until other medical issues were rightened to his comfort and a custom knee was assembled just for me. After lots of time and checking with other patients, Dr Sinha did the job beautifully and his after care is SO comforting. I trusted him with my life, would do it again. MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!

      He is one of the finest surgeons I have ever had and most of my replaceable parts have been replaced. He is very kind.
